GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Is Patient Six? Franco Confronts Betsy!

Courtesy/ABC

The intrigue is mounting for the return of Steve Burton next week on the upcoming September 19th episode of General Hospital. However, this week’s final two episodes on Thursday and Friday unraveled some clues, and more questions on how this will all play out leaving viewers with their own theories.

Ava (Maura West), who has gone to Russia to have have facial reconstruction by the acclaimed Dr. Boronsky, thank to a deal she cut with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), is waiting to see the doctor.  However, Larisa tells her she will have to wait some time and that she needs to confiscate her cell phone to due the delicate nature of the patients, as their work need to stay anonymous.

After Larisa leaves, Ava is shocked to see a man wearing a hoodie in a wheelchair, and with a mask on covering his face.  The man does not speak. When Ava tries to have a conversation with him, she mentions Port Charles. The patient seems to react and clench his fist.

Larisa freaks seeing Ava talking to the man they call “Patient Six”.  She informs Ava that the man suffered a horrific fate due to a violent crime, because he was shot and fell in the water, and has had some kind of psychotic break, and is likely beyond all help.  She also mentions that the patient comes from a wealthy family. This begs the questions:  Is this Jason ? Is this Nikolas? Could it be Morgan disfigured after the car bomb explosion who fell into the water? Is this all a red herring, and it’s someone else?

Meanwhile back in Port Charles. it’s Franco’s (Roger Howarth) art gallery exhibit opening and the show of his paintings, but his painting of two boys has certainly got Franco concerned, and he reveals he will not sell it if anyone wants to buy it.  Betsy Franco (the mother that raised Franco as “Bobby”) attends the gallery opening thrilled that Franco invited her, but Franco clearly has ulterior motives to get some answers to his childhood.

Later, Franco introduces Betsy to Elizabeth (Rebecca  Herbst).  He informs his mother that Liz is a nurse, which makes Betsy skittish. Alone with Betsy, Franco pulls out the photo of him as a young boy, next a young boy with blonde hair, who is Jason. Franco pointedly asks Betsy, why Jason is in this photo?  She promises him some long-awaited answers saying he deserves to know the truth.

At General Hospital, after Sam (Kelly Monaco) is having to make difficult decisions on Jason’s (Billy Miller) care, and whether to move him to a facility, or to her home, he moves his finger showing signs of life, but she does not see it.

So how will this all play itself out GH fans? Who do you think “Patient Six” is? What is the true story behind Franco and Jason;s childhoods, and the deception by Betsy? What will happen to the man right now believed to be Jason in the hospital? Share all your theories in the comment section below?

Billy is going nowhere..

thanks to Helena.. 0ooh and her curse on Sam is working quite well ..

The one and only way to keep 2 Jasons is’

the two Jason’s are twins..

Steve will be Jason Stone Cold

Billy will be Jason/Jake Quartermain..
(( ever notice how Billy/Jason is much like Jason Quartermain was before his brain got wrecked ?))

Franco is Jason Quartermaine’s brother or half brother therefore making Franco a Quartermain.

Why back.. Heather at the Quartermaines, sitting at the desk had an envelope, which held a secret of Franco and the Q’s at that time when Franco was mixed in with Q’s..

00oohh..
Franco, a main character, has never been connected to a GH family, this is when Fanco becomes a Quartermain therefore giving him roots..
And he will from now on be in with Jason/Jake Quartermain and Stone cold Jason both will be family..
My guess a dysfunctional family, but that is the true Quartermain’s lol .
(building up the Q’s)

Sounds good, su. I think anything is possible, plausible or not…..TPTB will ‘fix’ it to meet their needs.
Jokingly, I even suggested triplets.
You are right in saying that Franco needs a ‘home base’—-perhaps, Scotty is not enough to tie him to the ‘core’ of PC. Hey, one never knows….Scotty may turn out not to be his bio dad.
Endless possibilies who his bio mom is: Heather? Susan? Monica? (Kidding).

Hi Su…yes; this is what I’ve been saying for weeks…that Heather mentioned there was another Quartermaine out there. So, it’s either the new arrival of the old Jason which would make the new Jason/Jake a Q or Franco a Q or all three. I love Franco. I love how they’ve matured his personality. He’s kind, loving, introspective, (though self-doubting which makes him rather vulnerable and sweet) yet responsible, parental towards Liz’s boys (though we only see lil Jake)…yet he’s still sexy, hot, (and a tad twisted). I could do without the twisted, that “caged” event with Elizabeth’s rapist was kinda… Read more »

Franco will not be a Quartermaine. That was tried and failed. Frank & RC brought Roger back as Franco to be a Q and take over the Q’s and ELQ with Ava. That was the first time FV and RC’s disrespect to the show and how totally clueless they were to what the GH fan base would accept was on display. Weeks of Franco’s obnoxious self squatting in the Q mansion doing arrogant Todd schtick didn’t sit well and he was given the boot. That’s why they latched him on to Scotty and Heather. Fans coming back for Burton, long… Read more »

You may be right about the hype being for naught, su. It’s like TPTB are now scrambling …..too much too soon; as I said previously. The introduction of more characters surrounding this storyline is going from ‘the road less traveled’ to a busy highway….and when that happens , the excitement abates, at least for moi. As yourself, I’ve said that Helena is up to her well-coiffed head in this. Oh, and yes, Heather….and now, that other woman ( the stepmom), as well. I like Franco, but not as much as I love Valentin, LOL. Hey, maybe they’re related. C’est possible,… Read more »

Patient Six is Steve Burton. If he isn’t Jason Morgan Frank and company will chalk up another huge fail after many. But I wouldn’t put it past him to come up with something convoluted and to destroy GH history. There’s some fan fiction out there that SB is the real Jason Q and BM is Jason M who was switched 22 years ago. That would destroy the entire history of the character, the history of GH and I wouldn’t put it past Frank to do it and we know that he and the writers get most of their ideas from… Read more »

Hi, AJQ, I do not think patient six is Burton. As I have indicated on the previous Burton site, I thought about that, but patient six looks too tall to be Burton. It is most likely Nik, but portrayed by another actor….same reason….both Burton and Tyler have a stockier, shorter frame. The legs on Paient six has legs ‘yay’ long. I, also, suggested that the blood drops on the ancestory ‘framework’ fell on Nikolas (name) with a Russian surname. Is it Nikolas or an ancestor/relative? I brought these points up as soon as I saw the masked man. Did Valentin… Read more »

Too bad the mask person didnt turn out to be AJ…Ava would be in shock!…then he could have revenge on her for leading Sonny to believe he killed Connie and getting shot but i doubt they would go there-maybe?

Celia

@Jimh.
He still may, Jimmy…..never know. I know I sound like a broken record, but MrMask looks long and lean. AJ wasn’t either…..but, TPTB could change the actor posing as whomever at the last minute.

@CeeCee….Whilst I am finding all of this scintillating subjecture to be totally tantalizing, I’m still of the opinion that we will be treated to a “Double Q” version of Jason twins and that Franco will remain the “odd man out” as always…at least, I hope so! The previous attempts to legitimize this mirthful malcontent’s place on the canvas as the illegitimate offspring of Port Charles pariahs Heather and Scotty was bad enough, but God help us if he is revealed as yet another Quartermaine heir gone lost and found….it really would beggar belief. I would be just as content to… Read more »

Patient 6 is Nicholas. All this is is a curve ball to Steve’s return. IF they decide to bring Nick back down the road, Ava will have remembered this 6 character, go back to the hospital where she had the surgery, he will be gone, a new story will be written for her quest to find patient 6 and she will eventually discover it is Nicholas RIGHT after she marries Griffin!

Jimh
Guest

I wonder if the mask man is Billy Miller…there was a switch at the hospital with the other Jason but with Billy Millers face again…,and then when the mask comes off it will be Steve Burton’s Jason…im old and confused and now im even more confused!!!-lol

There is a possibility the masked man will be switched daily. Body shape will probably not make a difference.

I think it’s Nikolas too.

Celia

@Shay. Everyone has great ideas….all of them are soon feasible, Shaybelle. We did speak of Valentin’s true identity at length, and you are most likely right. As far as Franco; the entire storyline, as is, is bizarre. I do hope it will all make sense sooner than later. And, not another Fluke flop. I’m still of a mind that Scotty knows a lot….methinks he doth protest too much. I am waiting to see how TPTB will incorporate Franco, Jason and Jason…..and, possibly Nik?….. Or is this a separate story? As usual, I do not trust they know what the story… Read more »

I think Patient Six is Nicolas. Right after a scene showing Six the camera went to a shot of the framed chart of the family tree with Nicolas’ name. Eva will discover he is Nicolas and she’ll be key in his recovery and return home. All this will validate Valentin’s periodic statement of how there’s no proof that Nicolas actually died. Perhaps Franco is one of the triplets – Billy/Jason, Steve/Jason and Franco is triplet number three. This could help fill up the empty seats at the Quartermain dinner table these days. Tracy’s gone, bad judgment resulted in letting Robert… Read more »

Celia

Absolutely, Max. I must have said ( ever so much) Valentin knew where Nikolas was until I was blue in the face. Thus, his constant cryptic remarks and white-washed denials. I think, both men worked together in a concerted effort to mask ( pardon the pun) the truth.
LOL. Max….are you saying the triplets idea I mentioned a few days ago, jokingly, could be a reality? That’s rich!!

Trudy
Guest
Trudy

I think it’s Nik, too. It’s “The Man in the Iron Mask,” who was the real king of France, while his younger twin brother sat on the throne. I’m hoping that it’s the real Nik, you know, the Prince Cassadine who was a good guy, not the one who married Hayden, ripped off the Qs, etc.

Only downside to this: a re-cast Nik. Upside: Nik alive redeems Valentin to some extent, making him a viable romantic lead for the woman who is obsessed with him – the Goddess Anna DeVane.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

RPW was a good guy but the character needed to be stronger. I hope Dillon returns in a few years older, ready to buddy up with Ned and take back the Q business. Thats the problem with Michael, he is too young and is not believable as a corporate raider. He looks more like an assistant manager at “Toys-r-Us!”

Rhonda

I think the Nikolas hints are red herrings.
It’s got to be Jason.
Both men were shot and fell in the water so it could be both.
It also occurred to me that it could be Morgan, however, Morgan was not shot and did not fall in the water.

Something tells me this is going to be Nikolas. We have waited a long time to get this resolved as to what became of the character. Would be the only way to keep Valentin on the canvas.

Since Tyler is not available, I would love to have Nick Stabile reprise the role of Nik!
I really think Nikolas is an important part of this story and needs to return.

Oh my goodness! Me, too! I thought Nick Stabile was wonderful as a temporary recast last year. So much potential storyline all around & maybe finally someone suitable for Ava. NS just brought the charisma and chemistry from Day 1. Plus real acting talent and not to mention he is just gorgeous! I’ll buy into any wacky storyline they can come up with to make this happen, LOL!

Celia

So would I, SZima. But, from the looks of ‘MrMask’, I think he’s too tall to be Stabile; whom I adore.

Celia, Nick Stabile is 6′ tall, so it could be him, but I’m sure it’s not. Darn!

Well it just might be Nikolas after all, played by Steve Burton. Valentin wanting to save his ‘inheritance’ to the Cassadine empire by finally reviving Nik unto Helena’s endgame of giving him the face of olJason just to mess with Jasam, Friz, Laura and Scotty….for the hell of it! Yeah?

Thanks, SZima. I didn’t know Stabile was that tall. In that case, yes, I take it back. I have prayed and hoped and wished for Stabile to return. Unlike most, I am not a Tyler fan.
Also NS and Maura West had an exceptionally well-oiled connection.

Tivette

Tivette

I agree that it’s Nicolas…blood dripped on his name when Valentine cut his finger on the broken glass on the family tree…then patient 6 was said to have been shot and fell into water…it all seems to point to Nicolas to me. The timing is perfect with Ava at the clinic, too. Maybe she’ll help patient 6 come out of his condition in some way. Besides, Ava and Nicolas had a real connection…sure hope Nicolas is played by the last actor Stabile as they really had some hot chemistry. Here’s to hoping!

“…if Jason dies, that means you have the blood of BOTH my sons on your hands.”

Yes, Chardsy. I derived complete and utter satisfaction from that statement.

@GaysOfOurLife. Sure there was bad-blood between Sonny and AJ. However, it takes a cold-blooded viper to kill another human being without the blink of an eye, or remorse. Hatred and “having a bone to pick” with someone is no excuse for murder. Regardless of AJ’s habitual drinking ( wasn’t he trying to be a better person? Son to Monica and father to Michael?), I liked him…… ….you may think that alcohol was leading him closer to death’s door…..but, it wasn’t alcohol that killed him, was it? It was Sonny’s mini-me, cowardly hand. Sonny should come down his high-horse. He is… Read more »

Hey there, CeeCeeGirl….Just found your reply! As I’ve already stated on another GH thread, I’ve no great problem with the age discrepancy thing between Billy and Steve, since the extensive reconstructive surgery “Jake” underwent can easily account for his more youthful countenance…there is still enough of a similarity in physical stature and other characteristics that those two share that make their “twinning” storyline quite plausible for me. On the other hand, not so much with Burton and RoHo, despite their more mutually-approximate years…the distasteful aspect of that possibility just makes me really not want to go there with these two… Read more »

I always said that Monica didn’t show any anger with Sonny for killing A.J. I don’t know too many people who play nice with someone who kills their child or anyone they love. I saw the scene and want to see some of that anger from Michael who overlooked what Sonny did too soon. Ron had him retaliating ; however, it fizzled out.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I think too many fans observed Monica’s lack of anger and resentment towards Sonny and complained about it, Boop. I know I am one of them, among others.
Maybe, the story-makers listened, hence Monica’s stinging words to Sonny—-more power to her…and let’s see more of the same.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Yes, CeeCeeGirl! That was a very satisfying moment when Monica finally unleashed her far-too-belated wrath at the “Diminutive Don.” (And I don’t just mean in physical stature, but moral standing, as well!) More of the same is definitely appropriate and suitably called for…dare we hope that this is simply the first verbal volley in the foreshadowed battle for both old and nuJason’s souls when the Corinthos crowd try to get their all-too familiar hooks into these imagined Q Bros????

It was THEN that Sonny ended up looking AJ right in the eyes, and saying to him… You really DO wanna die, don’t ya….?” I think he was also underhandedly trying to bring up the point that practically more than half of the time that AJ was alive, he was pretty much drinking himself more closer and closer to “death’s Door”.

Hey Patrick… First of all…toxoplasmosis doesn’t cause the symptoms Sam had. I don’t know where the writers got that from. From what I’ve read it rarely causes symptoms and when it does it’s usually mild; (though it could be fatal to the baby). I didn’t see anything about hallucinations. Be that as it may…in GH world Sam was hallucinating because of said condition but I think: everything that Sam has said so far is actually long overdue. While under her hallucinatory state she feared Sonny would bring Jason back to work for him and Jason would be harmed. Well, she… Read more »

I was referring strictly to who I think Steve Burton will be playing. Not sure if “patient six” is Steve Burton or another actor they’re bringing on.

Hey Rebecca! Good to hear from you too!

Ava loves Nik….would she choose a Steve Burton nuNik over Duke’s son Grif-Finn? It seemed like they wanted the Lavery-Jerome entanglement again but I just can’t picture Grif-Finn as Ava-ry’s step pop.

The whole Franco return and his pursuit of this lame picture mystery seems way too convoluted. Why does Roger look at the camera awkwardly in like 90% of his scenes? It’s so distracting and unnecessary.

I realize the chances for this particular actor to reappear on the GH canvas are probably slim-to-none, but with the myriad of clues being tossed out like Halloween candy at the moment, I don’t see where bringing back AJ would really enhance this specific storyline as its being drawn or answer the immediate questions at hand. That being said, I never say never that the genuine… Read more »

In the first crossover event EVER on GH, it turns out that patient Six is really Dylan McAvoy from Genoa City. Steve Burton rides into town on his bike proclaiming himself to be Jason Morgan. It turns out that the fake Jason (Steve Burton) had a twin, named Dylan and they were separated at birth. It turns out that Monica had an affair with Ian Ward in the 80’s while Alan was at work. She became pregnant of course and delivered twins but she paid off the staff at GH to keep the double birth a secret. She sent Dylan… Read more »

I can’t seem to dismiss the two blood drops on Nikolas-someting-last name—–indicative of whom is behind the mask?
My heart tells me it’s Nik; my mind tells me it could be anybody. But, at the risk of sounding repetitious, the body is so similar to Franco’s and Morgan….lanky. My mind does stray….

Didn’t Sam found Jason’s wedding ring when she searched the harbor for his body? There was a plot point or two about that.

Nikolas was legally married to Hayden at the time of his death.

I had forgotten about Sam. I’m not sure but was there something also about Nicholas having someone’s ring?

You’re right, Nik had Jason’s wedding. Sam found that stupid figurine at the bottom of the harbor.

If I remember correctly Nikolas did have Jason’s ring, but Spencer found it, kept it, but lost it at Patrick’s house. Didn’t it roll under the sofa, or something? Didn’t Sam find it there?
I do believe Nik had a stake in finding that ring, but I can’t remember why….those were his ‘dark’ days.

Morgan was never shot so that rules him out. If this was a Jason reveal would it not make more sense to have the real Jason in a coma in a long term care centre where Sam is going to admit Jason 2.0? It seems there would be more drama in that scenerio than Ava finding him –is Ava even aware what the old Jason looked like? No, my money is on this being Nikolas. Ava and Valentin both fit into that story line — and it makes sense– that is my guess and hope, because Valentin needs a serious… Read more »

Well the blonde said ” he got shot, fell into water and went into shock…so patient 6 has to be one of the three…Jason, Nicholas, or Morgan. So Theory #1 – Patient 6 is Morgan Corinthos, Dr. Bronsky is Steve Burton as Jason Q and Billy Miller is Jason Morgan. Theory #2 – Billy Miller turns out to be AJ who was brainwashed into thinking he was Jason Morgan (the writers rewriting history) and Steve Burton comes back as Jason Morgan ( since the TV ads keep showing him in a leather jacket on motorcycle.

@Grant Putnam.
Who knows, Grant Putnam…maybe Miller needed time off and TPTB created the shooting to revolve around his leaving, in order to accomodate him.
…….or, it could be to create drama heralding Burton’s ‘princely’ entrance on stage?
Many possibilities here which I find to be poor imitations of ” The Man in The Iron Mask”?
“The Count of Monte Cristo”? LOL.

IF, Nicholas was recast then Michael Fairman would know, he knows everything soap..
Michael Fairman has not reported the recasting of Nikolas or Morgan ..
And c’mon could a recast of star ‘s be kept from him, naw.

And, not to mention be hidden on the set while filming for months.

Hi Gram..
Ohh my gorsh, no !

steve burton will not be a recast Nikolas, that one is plain stupid, whoever came up with that one wasn’t really doing a lot of thinking, just imagine, sam thinking about jason old face and having some sexual dream of him from the past but now he’s her cousin? yuk! so i have no idea how all this will play out, but i’ll give it a chance, but if this turns into just about sonny, carly sam and the two jasons then i’ll be turn off.

I disagree about Days. While it has gotten better, it still deserves to be in 4th place. There are so many bad actors and the sets suck. Gh has great talent and have amazing sets. Sally is getting to write more intriguing stories. (I.e. Patient 6, Franco, Finn mystery etc)

I’m still holding out hope that the famed Dr. Bronsky turns out to a pseudonym for Dr. David Hayward, who has branched off the Orpheus Project from AMC and is now in the business of facial/bodily reconstruction. I think Vincent Irizarry would fit in very well on GH and tying him to characters like Ava and Valentin would be a smart move. As for Patient 6, I think it makes most sense for it to be Nikolas. There has been so much talk recently from Valentin suggesting that Nikolas might be alive, and if Patient 6 was put into the… Read more »

Hmmmm, Patrick. Could Dr. Bensch be one of the missing links in the triplet/Nikolas/Valentin/Russia story? What a mess…getting a headache over it. LOL.
Could there exist a collaborative ’embroidery’ between Valentin, Nikolas ( or whoever MrMask is), Dr. Bronsky and our good Dr Bensch, whose protegee, Kiki, seems to be his obsession?

@Patrick….Trying to convince the viewers that the soulless Sonny is a spiritual being is a thankless task indeed, not to mention an absolute exercise in futility!….Really….why even bother? Given his past history of so-called “personal reinventions,” this latest effort to “humanize” the egotistical, remorseless thug will surely be just as much of a failure as have all previous attempts.

Steve
Guest

While I would love seeing David Hayward on GH (for at least a short stint), a telling sign that won’t happen soon is the writers giving Dr. Bensch the first name “David”. If they had any intent of bringing Hayward on, Bensch would’ve been given a different first name.

Timmm

Jimmy, enough with the other cancelled soap opera characters! NONE of the characters Frank has brought on have made any positive contributions to the show. For instance, I like Dr. Bensch but he is creepy, not on enough with no substance to cling on to. Stunt casting only works for legends such as Liz Taylor! OLT and AMC have to let it go. I would accept the same terms of GH was cancelled.

Shay
Guest

Amen, Timmmbo! And that goes not just for those defunct characters, but their portrayers, as well! Here we already go again with the addition of Jessica Tuck! You’d think there were only a few other soaps that ever existed with the way old OLTL and AMC actors are frequently plucked for prime GH spots in favor of other favorite famous faces from former daytime dramas that we grew up watching and loving.

Is this the real Valentin? Maybe the masked man is the real Valentin. Are we forgetting, Luke Spencer? Seriously the masked man has to be Nik. Unless there is a comeback of Stefan Cassadine, to set things straight once more, to get Nik and Spencer back into Wyndemere (Castle). Can’t trust them Cassadines, they will change one’s face to what they want it to be or bring back the dead to life. (smile)

@CeeCee….I can recall mentioning to you in the past that the current Valentin could be an imposter, since he certainly never fit the vivid description set forth by the (departed???) Helena. That concept would definitely work for me, as far as for whom this “masked man” could be. It would also be delicious if it were Stefan, or, what in the heck is Jerry Jacks up to these days??? He’s been pretty darn quiet which usually means he is up to something, well, NOT good…and he is normally somewhere in the mix of these evil bad boy miscreant antics!

Here is what I think will happen with Steve Burton’s return. HE is Jason Quartermaine, the doctor who Helena formed him into her own man, Dr, Bronsky. She has her medical guy in place and somehow since she is “Dead” Valentin has taken over her role in the messy Frankenstein lab. As for Jason Morgan, it was a soldier Helena created. He will still take the name Jason Morgan but will have to aligned himself with others. He will probably work with Sonny but him and Sam will be done and Steve Burton will claim Sam and his endearing mother… Read more »

I believe Steve Burton is the real Jason Morgan (Quartermaine), while on the other the hand Billy Miller (Jason) might be his twin. This is where Helena might have experimented on him and program his brain to think like the real Jason(Steve B.) Thus knowing enough to relate to Sam, Sonny and Carly. This clinic the man in the mask (Jason) is sitting, it might just be run by Helena, good luck on this one Ava. I think Nick is alive and is staying in hiding, for now, Helena will make sure of that, whether she is dead or alive.… Read more »

Basically as you can see and know that Franco and Jason are actually cousins not brothers and Jason in the hospital is actually Drew who happen to be Jason twin who supposedly died at age 3 but Franco remember Susan coming to take Drew out the home. But who this woman related to that raised Franco.

Breaking News

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

Ingo Rademacher Wraps His Run as General Hospital’s Jax

During today’s Monday, November 22nd episode of General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher made his exit as Jasper Jacks.

The actor who is out at the ABC daytime drama series for not adhering and disagreeing to the GH and ABC Covid-19 vaccination mandate, saw his character written-out when Jax shared his final scenes with Laura Wright’s Carly and Cynthia Watros’ Nina.

In story, Jax ran into his ex-wife Carly and informed her he was leaving Port Charles immediately to deal with business in Sydney, Australia.  He adds, he is not planning on coming back to town with this sentiment.“I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

Things are not be left on good terms with the exes, when Carly spouts, “You know, Jax, I thought I made it clear … my life is none of your business.” After some back and forth about their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Jax says that he is, “Happy to stay out of your life.”

Later, Jax visits Nina at Charlie’s Pub, and warns her to be careful about getting even more deeply involved with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and she deflects that there is anything going on between them, and telling Jax that her and Sonny don’t have a future together.

Rademacher’s Jax is now off the canvas of the series.

So, what did you think of how GH wrote out Jax and Ingo’s exit from the show? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

And you can always judge a man by his actions, and he was kind to everybody, all the time. He made sacrifices for us, and his family, and I want people to know that not only was he an amazing actor, he was just an amazing man and an amazing father that I look up to.”
